Again, let's create a problem as we already have a solution:

Test more people (the healthy including schoolkids) = more cases (cases don't mean ill people, LFT not 100% reliable and FDA phasing out PCR for same reason)

We moving into winter - traditionally always peak time for respiratory infections, culling of the old and vulnerable and a complete meltdown for the NHS - but now known as Covid resurgence !

A test system that works would be good.


There’s certainly an argument that the Tories are using the pandemic to undermine the NHS, and what with that the so called Health Secretary who’s not very subtly revealed his stance on the continuation of a public health care model. I don’t want to get singled out as anti Tory, I am not sure how Labour would be handling the NHS given they’ve been out of power for so long now anyway.

How about the tried and tested pre-covid model - you go about your business until you're ill then you stay home and don't spread it round? Seek medical help when necessary?
Oh hang on - they've got that beat - asymptomatic spread, gotcha! Doesn't matter there's little convincing data for it and even when it occurs it's not spreading a devastating disease - still, let's rip the heart out of society and terrify the living daylights out of everyone...

I have a friend who works behind the scenes in the NHS and believe me, that institution is destroying itself without any help from government hands - you would simply not believe the eye watering amounts of money wasted whilst the people's well being is thrown in the bin.

I definitely would believe that. I’ve had enough horrifying NHS experiences to think how is this person on such and such a salary, that said I have had overwhelmingly very positive experiences of NHS staff at all levels.

I'd have to say 50/50 - they were great when they were saving my life in hospital - not so hot in everything else.

I did a stint at NHS Digital and it wasn't ideal - too many Project Managers, consultants etc on serious money adding very little.

Again, front of house staff are amazing, back end projects etc not so great.

There's a lot of dead wood there that if flushed away would pay for much more front line staff and training.

Yes off thread a bit, the NHS is a great institution but as others have said they waste billions of pounds, the biggest problem I see is to many managers who run it Like a business, the staff ie, nurses, health support staff and Doctors etc are excellent but it's the bad management and to many suits who know fuck all whats going on, our local Hospital in Salisbury is excellent and they saved my dads life when he had Cancer and Covid last year, he's a tough old chap 92 very frail but still going.

That's quite an age to be hospitalised - can imagine how rough on you all it was/is - sounds like he's made of stern stuff though!
